Jurgen Klopp has pleaded with Liverpool fans to respect travelling Roma fans outside the stadium when they confront AS Roma in today’s UEFA Champions League semi-final first leg clash at Anfield.
Liverpool fans attacked the Manchester City bus conveying players and broke windows as the visitors were making their way into Anfield for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals, something Klopp does not want to repeat itself.
Klopp made the plea during his pre-match conference on Monday ahead of the game tonight.
“Outside the stadium, please show the respect we have to show. This is an outstanding football club known for its fantastic atmosphere, so we don’t need to throw things at the bus. In the stadium do it again and better.
“Please show the respect that they deserve. We are only opponents on the pitch. Everyone knows what a wonderful place Rome is and not all people know how wonderful Liverpool is and we can show that in twenty minutes.”
Liverpool are bidding to reach the final for the first time since 2005.
